Independent Publishing Group
Offering a garden-variety of carefully cultivated lists, this suggestion guide for the at-home movie viewer incorporates classic films with those more obscure for a full menu of watch-worthy films. Online streaming services might present their own recommendation services, but little is provided about the film beyond a snippet description and further research is usually required. This all-in-one recommendation source provides descriptions, a capsule review, trivia, and helpful tips on where to locate the movie—whether in DVD format or online. Hosting a mini-film festival or coordinating the programming for a film class or club becomes an easy undertaking with this guide on hand, or it could simply be the solution for any given Friday night. Such figures as authors, film bloggers, and columnists contribute to the suggestions, incorporating the respected views of people that include Julia Sweeney, Barry Gifford, and Bilge Ebiri.

Among those contributing to this book are:
Bilge Ebiri (popular film blogger)
Barry Gifford (author of Wild At Heart)
Bill Ott (Publisher of Booklist)
Julia Sweeney (Saturday Night Live cast member and monologist)
Zoe Trope (author of YA memoir Please Don’t Kill the Freshman)
Ken Vandermark (MacArthur "genius" grant-winning jazz musician)
Eugenia Williamson (pop culture columnist for The Boston Phoenix)
